Salisbury rolled up 402 total yards, all on the ground, in routing Frostburg State, 42-15, in yesterday's Regents Cup football game at Johnny Unitas Stadium.

It was the Sea Gulls' third straight cup victory, and they lead the series 18-16.

The two teams gained 723 yards in total offense. The lead rusher for the Sea Gulls (5-5, 2-2 Atlantic Central Football Conference) was sophomore quarterback Ronnie Curley, who carried the ball 14 times for 178 yards and one touchdown.

Menhorn brought Frostburg (2-7, 0-4) within one with a 25-yard field goal 3:42 into the second period, but it would not get any closer. Salisbury took a 21-6 lead into halftime.
